Los Angeles’ Lucky Wheels Garage is hosting a campout ride from L.A. to Ojai, California, on October 1-2.
The “White Lightning Campout” promises “friendship, passion, excitement, thrills, danger, glory, risk, and lust.” While this may sound like big talk, riders who have attended previous Lucky Wheels Garage events such as their annual Panty Drive Rodeo know they won’t be disappointed.
Campers will be divided into two teams by distinctive colored headbands. These two teams will compete with each other for eternal glory in tug of war, “bro-tato" sack racing, the Golden Nugget, and other games. The night will conclude with a talent show and a dance party in proper “Wet Hot American Summer” fashion. Food and water will be provided, but campers must bring their own tents.
Lucky Wheels Garage is a Los Angeles-based DIY motorcycle garage dedicated to helping motorcyclists of all levels have access to space to work on their bikes, the tools they need, and a tight-knit community of like-minded individuals. Lucky Wheels Garage is part of a growing movement of moto collectives, open-armed spaces where motorcyclists can work on their bikes, seek assistance and instruction from experienced riders if they have questions or need specialized tools, and become part of a community of people who share the same passion.
Lucky Wheels regularly hosts classes instructing riders of all levels how to maintain and modify their motorcycles, as well as basic fabrication skills for those looking to customize their motorcycles.
Tickets to the “White Lightning Campout” are limited, so all interested riders are encouraged to get their tickets on the Lucky Wheels Garage website sooner rather than later if they don’t want to miss out. Campers are encouraged to wear their best summer camp counselor outfits. Tube socks and short shorts are expected.
